Justin Padfield and the gang at Scott’s Hot Rods in Oxnard, California are making quick progress towards completion of the Goodguys 2015 Grand Prize Giveaway Truck – the Eric Black-designed 1970 Chevrolet C-10. All summer and fall, the Scott’s Hot Rods team has been thrashing on the truck to make next summer’s Columbus debut deadline. This truck will be incredibly nice. And LOW! When it sits on the pavement, the truck will be just 4 inches off the ground and the top will be just 57-inches tall!
Design elements currently being hand crafted include a recessed grill & headlights, side exit exhaust, raised bumpers, reduced drip rail, custom scalloped side trim and many other subtleties. The striking color is a modern take on mid 60s Lindale blue. PPG will supply the paint which will be sprayed by Palmer’s Custom. As you can see from Black’s rendering, the wheels are Billet Specialties Bonneville-G series wrapped in red striped rubber. The interior will be an orange/red two-tone blend with other neutral colors stitched by Ron Mangus.
The truck will feature a Linginfelter LS3 engine and TCI Automotive Transmission and controller. It will be AutoCross worthy with Scott’s own tube chassis, Scott’s IFS and standard 4-bar rear with a Scott’s Watts link, Ridetech coilovers, Wilwood brakes, a Moose rear end and more.
The truck will make its debut at the Goodguys 17th PPG Nationals in Columbus, OH July 11-13, 2014 then be given away at the 18th PPG Nationals in July of 2015. There will be two ways to win. You can qualify as an event participant through the Goodguys Sunday Lucky Ticket program or become a member of Goodguys to be eligible to win.
